British Pound (Monthly)

In my prior article (US Dollar Monthly), I conclude that the US dollar is going to be weak this year. In order to having the best combination for our currency basket we need to Analyze other major pairs like EUR, GBP, AUD and others. What we shouldn’t do right now is to analyze the major it selves. For example, If you wish to trade EUR/USD, you can analyze the EUR pairs and USD pairs individually, like EUR/GBP and EUR/CAD or EUR/AUD first and then do the same for the USD. Only after you have the possible direction of both currencies you go to EUR/USD pair to see where price might go.

It’s Fed day, and markets traded flat ahead of this afternoon’s announcement. While most economists don’t expect the Fed to make any interest rate moves today, futures markets are pricing in increases later this year, and investors await the Fed’s economic projections and policy statement Wednesday afternoon to get a better sense of how things might play out.

Fed Gives Dollar a Smack

The USD on Wednesday weakened throughout the market. The Fed decided to keep their interest rate at 0.25-0.50%. It was announced that the rate is to be raised twice this year, and not four times as was said earlier. It is this that caused a sharp fall of the dollar.
